The front panel live images, shared by @medicalman1987, again suggest the same design as the CAD render video and the aforementioned render for the Mate 10 but the Pro variant can be seen sporting even thinner bezels at the bottom half of the display. Further, the Home button is not present below the display on the Mate 10 Pro, unlike the regular variant of the smartphone.

While both variants are expected to feature "EntireView" displays with 18:9 aspect ratio, the screen size for only the regular variant has been tipped till now. Leaks have suggested that Mate 10 will sport a 5.99-inch QHD (1440×2880) display.

Coming to the pricing, the Mate 10 smartphone has been tipped to be launched in three configurations – 4GB RAM/64GB storage, 6GB RAM/128GB storage, and 6GB RAM/256GB storage. The three variants will be priced at CNY 4,299 (roughly Rs. 42,300), CNY 4,899 (roughly Rs. 48,200), and CNY 5,599 (roughly Rs. 55,000) respectively.

These variants will be priced by the company respectively at CNY 5,499 (roughly Rs. 54,000), CNY 6,199 (roughly Rs. 60,900), CNY 6,899 (roughly Rs. 67,800), and CNY 7,499 (roughly Rs. 73,600).
